What an amazing year to be trapped inside! For a lot of folks, this has been the year for playing loads of games and getting to experience everything on the menu. For me, it’s largely been just another year of juggling responsibilities and doing what I can to make time for games as they come, and probably spending too much time playing older games instead of newer ones. Priorities! This was also the year I finally invested effort into getting my Twitch channel off the ground (sorry for the shameless plug), which did end up driving my decisions to play some older games, and a lot of multiplayer ones.
Sea of Thieves is the pirate game I’ve always wanted. It doesn’t deliver in all the ways I would have expected, but it makes me feel like the world is my oyster. Rare nails the look, sound, and feel of being a pirate with Sea of Thieves. Where it falters though, is giving you the information necessary to get started. Once you get everything figured out though, Sea of Thieves is at its most fun with friends.
